New Zagato Aston Martin

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by Valaraukar, May 11, 2011.

  1. From Autoblog:
    Design house Zagato has created a seemingly endless array of beautiful machines for a wide variety of automakers. But few of them evoke the kind of storied and celebrated lines as the collaboration between Zagato and Aston Martin.

    The first such venture started some 50 years ago with the eminently desirable and highly coveted DB4 GT, continuing through the V8 Vantage Zagato (based on the '80s-era muscle machine as opposed to the contemporary compact GT) and on to the DB7 Zagato and DB-AR1 of the last decade. Now the two are teaming up once again for a new coachbuilt special set to debut at Italy's upcoming Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, where it will share the sunshine with Pininfarina's new custom Ferrari and what promises to be a staggering array of mechanical works of art.

    Few details have been released at this point, though Aston has released the solitary teaser-rendering above. But AM is keen on displaying the initial show car, freshly draped in Milanese coachwork, to gauge public reaction prior to launching a commercially available version sometime in the near future. Follow the jump for a full run-down of the collaboration between the two marques in the official press release.

    Per, the new Zagato powered car will be based not on the bigger DB9/Virage/DBS, but the V8 Vantage and the car will be raced at this years' Nurburgring 24 Hours!

    Sounds like this will be amazing, especially with a race version.

  12. I love Zagato Astons, but should have been based on the V12 Vantage.
  13. Is it just me or is it too alike of the Ferrari 575 GTZ?

    Still hot, though. Aston Martin Zagatos rule!
  14. All I'm seeing is the same Aston Martin front I've been seeing for the past 10 years
  15. Most recent Zagato cars look alike.
  16. oh wah im seeing too much of the best looking modern car
    waaah waaaahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaah
    you need a shoulder to cry on
    lay your head on my lap and cry those warm tears
  17. All new Aston Martin model!!

    (Sorry, I couldnt resist <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>)
  20. I think I know what it will look like.

  21. Holy mother of god, this thing is soooooooooooooooo sexy. I absolutely love it
  22. WOW, that looks great. Far better than expected, love the rear lights and integrated diffuser. This is what Aston martin should do with their cars, keep them looking like Astons but make significant changes from model to model.

  23. Not sure yet what to think but it definitely looks original compared to the other Zagato's that have been revealed lately.
